Thirteen singing dwarves and a very funny Hobbit

Martin Freeman (Bilbo) and Aidan Turner (Kili) at today's press conference - this cast is a killer combo of wit and good looks.
Fourteen individuals and an ensemble.
Todays press conference opened with an apology from Peter Jackson, who said he couldnt be there as he was under a form of medical house arrest since being hospitalised with a perforated ulcer last week.
And to be honest, perhaps its just as well. These guys make me laugh so hard that Id be in danger of popping a stitch or something, Jackson continued in his statement.
Confirming the truth of that, the cast of 13 dwarves and one hobbit kept up a constant flow of quips and wisecracks throughout the whole press conference. We knew Martin Freeman was funny with a good script well, hes hilarious without one as well.
Many fans have been wondering whether 13 dwarves would become a generic mass in the film, or whether they would be fleshed out in the script to have individual personalities.
Dwarf actors William Kirchner and Peter Hambleton spoke on that: We are thirteen distinct and strong personalities but we are an ensemble as well.
Speaking of ensemble, the dwarves confirmed theyd be doing their own singing. Its all staying very close to the book yes, there WILL be singing.
